I’ve been in Vancouver, BC since 1999, and in that time, have been witness to the growth of the fan base of the Canucks, and the fervor with which the city follows the team. Heroes and scapegoats are made on almost a daily basis with fans here demanding perfection from all their players. Wearing the jersey of the Canucks comes with a great responsibility, and let’s be honest, there are a few players we wish never put the blue and green(or dark purple and silver) on. While many have come and gone in the 12 years I have been here, these are 5 players that our recent history refuses to let us forget, even as much as we might like to.

I'm not a tattoo guy myself, but I have a certain respect for fans with enough passion for their team that they'll get a logo, or a favorite player's number, or some variation thereof etched permanently onto their skin. At the very least, anyone willing to spend the money and risk having their tattoo turn into wrinkly gibberish as they age, earns the right to forever get a pass from accusations of being a bandwagon fan. In fact, I think that's kind of the point.

Depleted Second Line No Reason to Sweatt

Bieksa and Henrik help David Booth off the ice following a knee-on-knee collision in last night's game.

Just as he was "heating up," David Booth looks like he'll be out of the lineup for a while following a careless, and scary knee-on-knee hit from Kevin Porter. The power-forward was just starting to enjoy some puck-luck, and was coming off of a three point game against Calgary. Booth will  have an MRI today and be re-evaluated, but the sight of him unable to skate off the ice under his own weight, leads me to suspect that it's a fairly serious injury.

As his percentages continue to normalize, Bieksa's dental PDO took a hit tonight.

A shaky start to a Tuesday night game, but the Vancouver Canucks took advantage of a porous Russian goaltender and pulled away with this game late. The Canucks beat their division (and soon to be Conference) rival Colorado Avalanche 6-0, giving them their second shutout win. This shutout, however, was split, as Roberto Luongo after a strong start, took a puck off the throat and had to leave the game. In came Schneider in a 1-0 game, and he was strong in mop-up duty.
